500k Raised For The Starlight Foundation Thanks to EB Games

Well done and congratulations to everyone involved!

Demonstrating amazing dedication to a worthy charity, EB Games along with the help of its gaming community, held a week (Starlight Week) of in-store competitions and all-night gaming challenges which managed to raise over $500,000 for The Starlight Foundation!

During Starlight Week all EB Games stores also donated 10% of games traded and $5 from each game purchased to Starlight.

The Starlight Foundation has passed on much deserved praised the contributions of EB and its staff.

Said Elisha Mackenzie, EB Games Marketing Manager:

“EB Games would like to say a massive thank you to all our generous customers that donated during Starlight Week 2012. This year’s result is simply amazing and could not have been achieved without local community support right across Australia.”

“The funds raised by EB Games and its staff will be vital in continuing to deliver our Starlight programs across Australia,” said Louise Baxter, CEO of the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

“Starlight’s programs are developed to distract children in hospital from the pain and stress of their illness and transform their experience of illness and treatment into a positive one. Starlight relies on the generosity of partners like EB Games to continue to brighten the lives of these children.”

EB Games stores are an official Starlight Day donation point nationwide.

Again, well done to everyone involved! $500k is a lot of money which will greatly benefit the poor little tykes in desperate need of a helping hand during their time in need. Yep. That made me well up!
